Today you’ll meet Massimo! He joined us in the Urban English Adventure in August in Boston.

You’ll find out about one slang word that he learned in Boston and why this trip is all about Connection NOT Perfection.




How is this trip different from language schools?

Massimo doesn’t like to visit cities like a traditional tourist.

He has also studied in language schools but this trip was different because in this trip he practiced English in a real environment.

It’s like driver education.

You want to know the theory but you also need the practice. This program provides that practice!


Which challenge did he enjoy the most?

He liked the Drama Lab. We did a telephone practice activity.

This was something that you cannot do in a traditional language school.

He had to guess the words that the native speaker was saying on the phone.

He also learned some new idioms related to baseball because we went to a baseball game that night.

After this program his mind switched more to speaking in English because he was only with American people and our group.

We were in an American environment the whole time.

Now Massimo is thinking in English!!


What kind of person should apply to this program?

  • People who want to learn more about American culture.
  • People who want to be more confident speaking English.
  • People who are planning to build a life in Boston.


How was the group experience for you?

In the first challenge we did we had to discover funny things about each person in the group while we ate breakfast together.

This brought people together and we bonded quickly.

We supported each other throughout the weekend.


How would you describe the trip in one word?

“Connection” and “wicked” (this means awesome)
